Home » Matching Gifts
Many companies generously match the personal contributions of employees. In almost all cases today, this requires you to initiate the action by notifying the HR department and requesting the match whenever your pledge has been paid. We are notified that a request has been made and asked to verify your paid contribution. We are happy to do that.
Volunteer Incentive Grants are another means to help fund the Longhorn Council. Companies frequently have a program to encourage employees to make contributions of time within the community. They will invest a monetary contribution to the charitable organization that you are volunteering for, again at your initiated request.
To find out if your company participates in this program, please use our search engine here to look up your company’s program. Any gift they make will count toward the unit’s Friends of Scouting total or a community Friends of Scouting Event total raised in support of the Council.
